Colorado Antero Wheat Whiskey

Colorado Antero Wheat Whiskey

$35.00 - $62.00

Dry Land Distillers 100% Antero Wheat Whiskey is made with grain developed and grown by Colorado State University in partnership with Colorado growers. This grain is a hard winter wheat grown less than 30 miles northeast of the distillery. It has impressive spicy notes, lots of character, and offers a phenomenal backbone for traditional whiskey cocktails.

Original Ingredients

  • Colorado Grown Grain - We use Colorado Antero Wheat grown 30 miles from the distillery at Arnusch Farms.
  • Pure Colorado Water - Our water comes from one of the most protected and highest-quality native water basins in the country.
  • Original Yeast – We cultivate and harvest our yeast on-site specifically for our heirloom grains.

Why Antero Wheat? This particular wheat variety was developed at Colorado State University's Agricultural department as a viable and sustainable option for Colorado's climate. Because this is a true "dry land" wheat, irrigation is only used if water is available and needed, making it an ecologically desirable choice. That, coupled with its inherent deep fruit flavor profile made it and easy choice to make a whiskey. We hope that you can taste the sun-kissed grain, and care taken to produce it, from seed to glass, in every sip.
